Starting up the thin crack of Panic in Detroit on ...


More than crack, this is face climbing on seams with a few jams sprinkled here and there. A #5 or #7 stopper (I can't remember-might be either) bombproofs the pump crux.

Few attempt onsight; most will TR to at least preview the stout moves and scanty pro (in places)


Just right of Bottomless Topless is this fantastic "face" with seams. Boulder out the bottom and keep fighting the off camber pumpy moves to the anchors.


Thin is in....anchors on top.

Incredibly fun route! Might have goofed up the sequence, but the mono digit finger lock dyno to the rail was awesome! Thoughtful, pumpy, techy, and powerful, this route rocks!

#8 stopper for the crux, not 5 or 7....will hold a dump truck
